The Catamaran Julia

Julia is a customised live aboard 50ft (16.5m) catamaran specialising in diving. She is based in Zanzibar, available for day sailing or for longer trips. She is fully equipped for diving and deep sea fishing and is crewed with a skipper, a chef, a deckhand and when necessary a dive instructor. She has 4 double cabins with en-suite facilities in each, a DVD/VCD player, surround sound stereo along with a long list of the necessary safety and navigational equipment.


Julia has access to some of the best dive sites in East Africa including the great walls and coral gardens around Pemba island and the multitude of fish life around Mnemba Atoll off the coast of Zanzibar. We cater for all levels of experience and can organise PADI dive courses on request.


All of Julia's trips include deep sea fishing as a daily activity. Many of her trips cross the Pemba channel, a world renowned fishing site promising catches of large game fish such as tuna, sailfish, kingfish and the like.
